Biden: ‘Just Fire the Shotgun Through the Door’

Posted on: February 28th, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden gives more shotgun advice in an interview with the outdoor website, Field and Stream.

F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?

BIDEN: Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.”

I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.

    Biden obviously doesn’t know anything about gun safety. I would stay a long way away from that idiot.

    • Hillbilly

      BIDEN & CHENEY should go HUNTING together !!!

      • Gerald Zirnstein

        That would be interesting! If they shot each other probably nobody would call medical services for a while until both of their useless a@@es expired.

      • Idadho

        Cheney would make it home. Not so sure about Biden. He will get pulverized by the lead he shoots at the moon.

        • http://www.facebook.com/sam.wicksjr.5 Sam Wicks Jr

          NO loss! He is only insurance for obamy. Who would take out obamy for fear that biden is just one heart beat away from the presidents chair.

      • Chief47

        Amen to that. And they should take Obama with them as the “scout”.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ronald.christopher.393 Ronald Christopher

        Well, they both got the same amount of deferments (to keep from going to Vietnam) so they would probably end up killing each other, which would be OK.

      • budman

        What a thought. You have a man who will shoot at anything that moves and and hates stupid people and an idiot who doesn’t have the brains to recognize he makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. I don’t think Joe should be taken out this way, just out of office and hopefully never heard from again. He is an embarrassment to this nation.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NLORN6B3ZNGCAJTFHWWFUUEY4Q jong

      Especially if he is on the other side of a door.

  • FlyTyer2

    Biden is Obama’s insurance policy. No sane person would forcibly remove Obama from office knowing that he would be replaced by Biden.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carl-Stevenson/100002324175685 Carl Stevenson

      We need to remove the whole administration from office for treason and corruption. Also, the vast majority od those in the a house, Senate, and courts.
      Our form of government is fine. It’s the corrupt, Marxist tray rants that have taken it over that are the problem.

      “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” — Declaration of Independence

    • Hillbilly

      Nah, BIDEN would screw up trying to read the TELEPROMPTER !

    • denoferth

      And that is probably one big reason why he was picked for the job.

  • KTB

    How do rational American people elect IDIOTS like Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Wasserman and the rest of the Democratic party. I don’t care for Obama, but at least he can speak eloquent enough and does not say the most moronic things like the rest of these morons do.

    • Don b

      Is being a pathological liar any better than a senile buffoon?

    • Idadho

      At least you know what you are getting with Biden. Obama is a slimy as a sewer rat. You never know what is coming next. Just expect it to be bad.

    • John W.H.

      reading from a teleprompter doesn’t make you smart, noboma is just one step futher up the chain of fools over biden, and the rest are just spouting nobomas talking points

  • Marv

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jim-VanBeek/8368139 Jim VanBeek

    I think we should make automatic weapons legal. Free citizens should have access to the same weapons that our law enforcement officers and soldiers have access to. Our rights to keep and bear arms is not to be infringed.

    • Jim213

      Jim we can always take away whatever gun our law enforcement officers have if they come after our guns

      • mrsgunnut10

        Yeah Jim, I believe they call any of that weaponry “Spoils of War” !!

    • denoferth

      Isn’t it wonderful that the Vice President of these United States is so ignorant of our firearm laws that he doesn’t know citizens in all but seven states can legally own fully automatic firearms. Listening to the fools and liars on TV repeat they are illegal over and over could lead you to the erroneous conclusion that machine guns were illegal but that is a blatant lie. The Nazis, Communists and now the democrats have proved if you repeat the lie often enough the ignorant and gullible will eventually believe it. You do have to jump through some legislative hoops and pay a fee but it can be done. Google machine gun meets and see for yourself.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ronald.christopher.393 Ronald Christopher

        That would leave 50 states that he is now aware of.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Thomas/100000389310609 Steve Thomas

      I agree. Let’s start pushing for the legalization of machine guns, tanks, RPGs etc. (Without taking 6 months to, maybe, get a class 3 license.) Let’s put them on the defense for a change.

      I surely wouldn’t go duck or deer hunting with him. He’s the type to take a sound shot a well and take down another hunter…..

  • Gerald Zirnstein

    It is NOT legal to shoot someone through your door. That will get you indicted for murder. Biden is a fool for saying that. They have to enter your house for it to be self defense. On the other hand, in the old days, before all cops were prick lawyers too, the cops would actually advise you to shoot through the door and then drag their sorry a@@ inside. Either way works for me when a violent a@@hole is involved.

  • Keenan Lee

    Whoohooo, yes, make machine guns legal. I definitely would get one. No argument here!!!

    • denoferth

      They ARE legal in all but seven states. Politicians like Biden and the liberial media will have you believe they were banned in the 1930’s but what really happened was registration and transfer taxes. Be very wary of any information you hear from talking heads and politicians on TV. Everyone makes jokes about all the misinformation on the internet but in my opinion the TV “news” media and “cop shows” are even worse.

  • Lee

    Funny how he talks to the libtard audience like he talking to a bunch of baby’s and they just drool on themselves and clap.

  • e111w

    I would call Joe a stupid son-of-a-bitch but I have never known his mother. He forgot to say that shooting through the door would almost certainly result in a second-degree murder conviction! And to think this accomplished idiot was admitted to the bar. How does that affect your opinion of the legal system?

    • http://www.facebook.com/john.rinar John Brinar

      I still have the same low opinion for lawyers…. Biden is just an average lawyer….

      • IMSweetOlBob

        If lawyers were that stupid, they’d never win a case.

      • LuckyCheetah

        Biden never practiced law, he went directly into politics. Regardless of the shot used, it wouldn’t penetrate my front door, 2″ solid aged oak. If the door swells, it’s near impossible to sand it down, have to use a Wildcat flat grinder. I’m not sure a slug shot would have enough to go through, and how do you know who’s on the other side. Most home robberies these days are done by a kick in anyway. I’d rather use new Colt MA16!!!

    • IMSweetOlBob

      Just whistle, and she’ll come out from under the house.

  • James Maxwell

    My wife shot a hole thru the roof many years ago, thought she heard a damm dim-0-rat on the roof.

  • Don b

    Another unwise suggestion from a deranged political hack without a clue.

  • Idadho

    A solid core front door will stop most of a shotgun blast. The perp will get hit with a bean bag of lead and wood. An AR-15 will go right through the door and feel mighty intimidating. It will not likely kill the perp but is can save the shooter from a voluntary homicide charge. If the first shot does not convince the perp to leave, a second and up to 28 more will be right behind. A single shotgun blast of buck shot is like shooting half a 30 round clip of .223 all at once. I”l take the AR-15 every time.

  • AZWarrior

    Okay. I’ll shoot through my door at my neighbor who is yelling and screaming and pounding on my door, but I can understand him when he saying his wife is choking. Biden told me to shoot

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002198081296 Right Way

    The stupidity of Biden is unreal. How did this FOOL ever get elected. He would NEVER make it in the private arena. He’d be fired in two days.

  • ReaperHD

    The progressive liberals went to extremes to find the dumbest moronic white boy they could find as to not have to worry about making the black boy look bad. As you can see they did a fine job at that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ishimo.brown Ishimo Brown

    In related news, liberals across America tonight are pleading, “Joe told me to do it” as local news agencies report a rash of Girl Scout and pizza delivery driver shootings.

  • http://www.facebook.com/robert.wintermeier Robert Wintermeier

    Biden is and always has been a delusional fool. I’ve fired all kinds of pistols, rifles and shotguns (nothing automatic). The shotgun is the hardest to handle and may even dislocate your shoulder making you more vulnerable to an attacker if you miss. It usually has only 2 barrels and even the pump type shotguns have limited cartridges. My preference for all around defense is the pistol. It’s what the police use so why not law abiding citizens. And it can be concealed. It’s perfect for a woman or teenager so long as all safety precautions are followed and the shooter is properly trained.

    Shooting through a door can lead to killing a family member, friend, neighbor or a kid “trick or treating” on Halloween who’s knocking on the other side. When will folks stop listening to Joe? Keep him away from guns too.

  • LUCKYME

    OBiden don’t know squat about firearms even he himself got caught shooting out the door like an idiot he would never beheld for wrong doing “O” will just sign another BS ex order they should all rot.

  • ChicagoThunder1

    Every maniac knows to blast the wall on the side where the door opens anyway. I wonder how Joe and Dr. Biden met on the couch in her office maybe? Joe’s not a maniac he’s just off the chain. Remember he knows about chains.

  • colt38

    Biden makes another brilliant remark. My shotgun will do you better than your AR 15. Really, that might be the case since you get to keep your shotgun Biden and wanting to take my AR 15. What a blow hole.

  • Ramjett

    Shoot thru your door, than go to jail, you fool. There must be illegal entry >>> how did you get your job.. yea shoot thru the door at someone that is looking for help..etc. let them break the door in than give them both bbls..

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000936261501 Gary Chambers

    It is certain that Biden never heard of a semi automatic shotgun which is one hell of an assault
    weapon. They can fire slugs that can do more damage at close range than an M-16
    or any other so called assault weapon. It doesn’t take a gunsmith to make them
    a larger capacity than the three round limit.

  • caskinner

    My advice would be to know who is on the other side of the door before you start shooting.

  • Jaime Cancio

    Biden is more than an idiot, the advice he just gave of shooting through a door – if he hits the person on the otherside of the door, outside the home and I would think indoors too, Biden will be arrested for first degree murder and sent to prison. An by-the-way Joe, with an AR15 beyond fifty yards it is highly unlikely you will hit me with your shotgun; with an AR15 and someone who knows how to use it is going to take that shotgun away from your dead body. His lack of knowledge is only surpassed by how far he has his head stuck in the darkness area that follows him everywhere. Fact is a kid that knows what he is doing from 125 yards away with his 22LR singleshot bolt action rifle has a greater advantage. And Joe check your history coming out of WWI, where a 22LR Colt Woodsman Semi-Auto Pistol with 6 inch barrel and target sights took German soldiers from across trench lines with the killing of some 88 men all with shots placed between the eyes and low that took out the spinal cord at the rear of the head.

    Biden is an embarrassment and it seems everyday he has to open his mouth and prove it.

  • Chaplain Michael Donohoe

    Oh, that’s just Joe. Give him a break. He’s insane. It does make you think twice about impeaching Obama because we’d get crazy Joe for our president. I think that’s by design. Obama knew if he picked a lunatic for a vice president no one would impeach Obama. Brilliant on Obama’s part. See I can say something good about Obama.

  • Ariviste

    I would hate for my little girl to be behind Biden’s door with some Girl Scout cookies to sell. I was always taught not to fire a gun unless you could see what you’re firing at. He needs to keep his mouth shut until he learns something about guns and safety.

  • Old Retired Copper

    This guy is such an idiot…as a retired Law Enforcement officer and weapons instructor the idea of firing any weapon through a door at an unknown person or persons is absolutely absurd. Without being in danger or great bodily harm or death an action like this is criminal. He is advising people to engage in a criminal act!!!! And the idea that a 12 gauge shotgun is easier to handle than an AR15 is also ludicrous. The AR15 in .223 caliber is a very low recoil weapon making in suitable for smaller individuals to fire it accurately and stay on target for follow up shots if necessary. Not true of the 12 gauge…I’ve seen big strapping cops take a step or two backwards after firing one for the first time and a quick check on U-tube will reveal plenty of smaller folks getting knocked on their butts by the 12 gauge. I think the Obama administration really should put a muzzle on this guy before someone out their takes his advice and shoots a Girl Scout selling cookies through their kitchen door…

  • rog363

    How could someone as stupid as this man seems to be ever have been picked to serve as Vice President? I think I have the answer to my own question, he was picked as VP so as to make the president look more intelligent

  • GG

    Every time biden opens his mouth he shows more and more how incredibly stupid he is…what an utter disgrace to our country.

  • truthbetold

    goofy joe. he doenst have a clue. i would be happy to show him how easy a ar15 is to use. and how much better it is for self defense… especially if your defending yourself from a tryannt. How about it joe.

  • Buford

    It would be negligent to fire through a door without first making sure that a politician is on the other side.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RickWizinAz Richard Prokopchuk

    Unless the perp is standing close outside, and the shooter inside is also close, this is a dumb, dumb, dumb idea. If the perp is not disabled, you may have just let them inside.

  • Tank

    I have a solid oak security door… That 12 ga buckshot won’t do a whole lot to anyone on the other side of that thing. .308 from my AR on the other hand…. Maybe joe was talking about shooting through your bedroom door? Not that I’d be stupid enough to attempt firing through my door, not knowing what/who is on the other side anyway… Just sayin’…

  • http://www.facebook.com/madbrad1953 Bradley Jones

    ok have someone stand 150 yds from me with a shotgun and buck shot shooting at me, and Ill have the AR-15, I win

  • mwl

    It is obvious that bidens stupid renderings are so skewed that law enforcement needs to be telling people this is not how you would protect yourself and the liabilities that come with what biden is telling Americans what to do. Secondly, get with the NRA, they have former military and law officers that will teach you the right way to handle weapons of any type. The safe way to do everything involving a forearm. Storage, carry, and usage.
    Remember, James Earl Ray was a democrat and murdered Martin Luther King Jr., the Aurora murders were were caused by a democrat, the Ft Hood murders were caused by a democrat with a muslim twist, Lincoln was killed by a democrat, the Virginia Tech killings the trend continues a democrat, Sandy my moneys on a democrat as well.
    What we have is the most untrained moron in the United States telling us how we should defend ourselves. biden opens his mouth and the stupidity flows forth with velosity, obama just takes a photo shopped picture and says I shoot skeeters with a gauge shotgun on a vacation and I love it cause thats what Im told by the teleprompter and my aide to lies and corruption is my best friend.
    The democrats think everybody is like what votes for them dumber than dirt, and an obamaphone. Is all you need.

  • wesjones21

    It is an embarrassment to have a Vise President who is so misinformed. It wouldn’t be so bad though…but this one is also a danger to anyone who might listen to his BS.

    Shooting through a door, even if nobody is there, is illegal in 90+ percent of homes in the US. Shooting through a door if one doesn’t know who might be on the other side it not only illegal, it’s criminally irresponsible and likely to get you charged with murder or some lesser offense. Then too, mention that you or your wife might just shoot through a door and see what your insurance agent does.

  • John W.H.

    Joe Biden is mentally incompetent, not to mention a disgrace to this country. if you are afraid just shoot through the door with a double barrel 12 gauge shot gun, what kind of shells should we use slugs, 00buck, or bird shot?? If he had a brain he would be dangerous, and he is the little man noboma put in charge of gun control? They really are a special kind of stupid, and both of them need to be in prison., before someone gets hurt bad.

    The man obviously doesn’t know anything about anything and the fact that he is only a heartbeat away from the Presidency is down right scarey.

How he could be married to a doctor or her to him is beyond comprehension… mary711

  • vietvet

    If you just fire through the door before the perp enters you are going to be charged with Murder. This man needs to put his mind in gear before he opens his mouth. That may be difficult for a man with no brain, so why the hell listen to him

      • fliteking

        I posted a image that was a spoof of the “Gun Buy Back” programs . . . only mine included condoms, Carney and Christy. A condom buy back and redistribution program of sorts. It was done in fairly good taste , did not include any offensive imagery and was even GREEN because used 10w40 was included in the process.. It got several likes before the moderators tuned in and put the hammer down.

        The place is riddled with trolls so a good deal of my time was spent snipe hunting , something I truly enjoy doing, but content is so heavily moderated you’d swear the place is run by a bunch of liberals & Soccer Moms. . . That and the server(s) crashes several times a day. After they banned me I did manage to get in the back door and fire off a final email to the moderators asking them to remove my info . . . they confirmed getting the email but never did respond.

        Anyhow – - – lesson learned, the REAL Tea Party and Freedom Loving Conservatives are best represented on these independent grass roots sites.

    Biden would be dangerous with ANY gun. He’s suggesting that an unidentified target on the other side of a closed door be fired upon? He’s an idiot!

  • Idadho

    Just imagine if Uncle Joe were to be come President. If there was a threat to the US, he would just take his shotgun out back of the White House and fire it into the air. If this did not scare off the threat, it would at least get the attention of the press.
